  1. I performed both simple eye dominance tests in your link and find I am neutral. If one eye is more dominant it is too close for me to tell. Hoping I could find an easy fix to take a couple less putts per round. Ball will remain in the middle of my stance.
  2. For those living in major cities living space costs a premium. This will only increase as the urbanization trend continues. Good for Sun Mountain to see the trend and bring innovative products to market. Good for the consumer and good for their bottom line.
  3. I watched the video and it was interesting that a part of testing a new ball was to cut it open. Good work MGS.
  4. A number of years ago I purchased a set of Vokey wedges from a website at a descent discount. When they did not arrive after a few weeks I contacted the company and they sent out replacements. A couple of weeks later I received both sets within two days. The logos did not look as crisp as I thought they should on a few of the heads and grips so I contacted Titleist. I asked questions and they had me check details right down to the smell of the grips to determine they were counterfeit. Ended up buying from a local store and received a full refund for the counterfeits no questions asked. Still have them in my basement never hit. They might be OK to use but not by me. When my kids started playing I went to a custom builder and they both ended up with Maltby KE4 irons and my oldest with a Wishon driver she can hit farther and more consistently than me. Everything was older stock the builder had since I was on a budget as I was not sure how much they would play. I would not hesitate purchasing Maltby or Wishon clubs in the future for my kids or myself. As far as where the equipment is made I don’t care. There are crap and quality items manufactured in the US, Europe and Asia. Buy brands you can trust at the price point you like.
  5. The more premium golf balls the better. More choices mean a better chance to find a ball that works for you. For those that don’t want to pay the premium price, if there are too many premium balls on the market some of them may end up on discount at a price point you are happy with.
  6. I have been using FMY’s tees for the last 2 years with the driver. Wanted to take out a variable since the driver is the worst club in my bag. These tees easily allow consistent height of the ball.
  7. I use a gate system. Easy to tell what the issue is in your putting stroke.
  8. For me this year was a toss up between Rory and Brooks. I look at it as what meant more to the voters. Wins may have canceled each other out with a major for Brooks and an extra win and wins in the next two most important tournaments of the year for Rory. Consistency in performance is lauded in all sports, especially among athletes. This may have been the deciding factor for the majority of voters. Rory’s consistency in top tens and his stroke average for the year probably pushed him over the finish line for the win this year.

    This picture brings back memories of watching James Garner on Rockford Files when I was a kid.
  10. I did a putter fitting with the Edel cart a number of years ago. It was informative to try the different configurations to see what worked better. In the end my putter at the time was not bested but I did end up changing the grip from pistol to round. More feedback and better hand placement for me. Going through something like this is worth the time and expense. Helps validate some things you thought and learn something new.

    I love smoke and peat. My favourite distilleries are Ardeg and Laphroaig. My favourite bottles are Corryvrekan and Quarter Cask. For company wanting to try something with peat and smoke I start them off with something milder. Bunnahabhain12 or 18 is milder and a little sweeter. If you can find bottles in the square boxes rather than the round tubes snatch them up. The newer versions are OK but the older are a step above. Bowmore 18 is good as well. Lagavulin 16 is another good option. These are the bottles I have found the most success with for new Scotch drinkers in this category. None are high abv and the extra age can help. All are easily approachable.
  12. Glad you found something that works well for you. A good example for all of us to keep trying new things.
  13. See my replies above. Sorry I do not know how to put them in a different colour as I have seen others do.
  14. I have been a lifelong NFL fan and would watch every game I could. The shine has now worn off. Years ago I watched something on Jim Otto well after he retired. Hearing him talk about the punishment his body endured and seeing footage off him just trying to get out of bed was sad to watch. Easy at the time to think he knew what he signed up for. Now that has completely changed for me with CTE issues. Every time I see a player retire early I am happy for him. Every time I see NFL lip service to concussion protocols I get angry at the commissioners office and the owners. NFL players are lower paid and have shorter careers than other major sports like baseball and basketball. Even hockey has guaranteed contracts. Why shouldn’t players sit out until they are paid what they are worth? Why shouldn’t they get more guaranteed money? Team owners will use them up and toss them away without a second thought. Players need to get everything they can to last them the rest of their lives, they know they can’t rely on the NFL or their ineffective union to help protect them. I expect the NFL will go the way of boxing. A slow decline as the puppeteers in charge destroy and then start running out of its human assets.
